Hmm... not as awesome on home video
8 December 2014 | by rooprectSee all my reviews

When "Shrek 4-D" premiered at Universal Studios in 2003, I'm sure it was nothing short of amazing. But that's probably not why you're reading reviews on IMDb some 10-15 years later. You're probably wondering if it's worth renting or picking up on DVD.

I would vote no. Clocking in at 13 minutes with no other features on the DVD except previews, this would've been better as a bonus feature on the Shrek movie DVD. I can't say I was dazzled by the 3D (and I was watching on a pretty good 60" screen) mainly because the cardboard red & blue 3D glasses, included, are sorta annoying on the eyes and nose.

I don't know much about 3D technology, but I know that some recent films like "Beauty & the Beast 3D" (2012) are a more enjoyable because the 3D glasses don't tint the colors so much. Perhaps it's just the difference between theater projection and home viewing, but unless you've got a theater in your house you'll probably be seeing it the way I did.

The story is about Princess Fiona getting kidnapped while Shrek & Donkey chase after her. No real story, but there's a lot of nonstop, fun action, a few funny lines, and the waterfall scene at the end is pretty impressive. I ended up watching the 2D version on the same disc because you can get a better appreciation for the colors & animation. It's definitely worth 13 minutes of your time, but unless you're a completist I don't think there's any need to run out and buy the DVD.
